This  has the potential for becoming nice tool. Can you imagine the ironic
scenario  where a Google Grouper kills all posts from Google Groups as  to
make  UseNetting  a more pleasant experience? If an exception is made  for
self,  this  might  be ready for practical use. [sarcasm] I would  take  a
further step and suggest another excellent suggestion -- that which closes
the browser when a Grouper hits "Reply". *smile*

Like, for example, message-id contains "google"?

How  does  one  compose  a filter in KNode, which  kills  all  crossposted
garbage?  I  can  recall such discussions in the KDE group. I  suspect  it
wasn't  possible at the time. Another filter that was lacked is that which
matches  custom-made  post header. This was raised when the  Mandrake  and
(one   among)   the   Linux  newsgroup(s)  got  hit  by  a   huge   flood.
comp.os.linux.misc  was  hit  by  another  flood  not  so  long  ago.  Any

Many thanks and best wishes to all,
